First review these videos from Chapter 3 about musical analysis before attempting this assignment. The focus of your paper should be on specific musical analysis. Think of it as a larger version of your Ch 3 Share.
Find and stream or watch a complete live musical performance of any genre.
It must be a live concert, not background music or video or TV.
Musical theater productions are acceptable.
You must watch a complete concert, not just one or two songs. Most concerts can run anywhere between 30 minutes and 2 hours.
You must include the link to the concert at the beginning of your essay or if you attended a live concert, a selfie of you at the concert.
During the concert, take good, specific notes throughout the entire event.
The bulk of your essay will be based on the notes you take during the performance.
I am looking for details from song to song, that show me you have paid attention throughout, and noticed changes to the music as it occurs.
Organize your notes into an outline.
Write a 3-4 page essay (12 point font, double spaced) about your specific analyses and observations.
If you cite any sources, make sure to include a bibliography. You will be submitting the paper through turnitin.com (Links to an external site.), so do not plagiarize,

Here are some concepts that will help you analyze the concert and give you a good idea of what I am looking for. While you don’t need to necessarily address all of these points, I’m mainly interested in the specific musical analysis of your concert. Show me that you’ve understood concepts from this class (especially as mentioned in Chapter 3). The questions below will help you think about analysis in a specific and thorough way.
General responses to the performance and to the music itself.
What type of concert was it and what was the general style of the music?
Were there any cultural implications related to our work in class?
What elements of SHMRG did you notice?
Be specific with your analysis.
Again, I recommend you re-watch these videos before going to your concert, so you can refresh your memory about specific musical analysis.
Focus on the following aspects of music and how it changes through time: timbre, melody, harmony, tension and release, range, meter, groove, form.
Remember to be specific and take good notes throughout your concert.
If you’re streaming or watching a pre-recorded concert, include time-tags for changes to the music, as you did in your Ch. 3 Share.
I am most interested in how the music is changing from song to song, so be wary of too much generalization.
For example, writing that an hour-long concert had “tense harmony” is not showing me that you’re taking notes from song to song, as harmony will change almost always change between songs and within one song.
Personal Responses to the performances in the concert
You liked it or didn’t like it. Why?
Include strong and weak points in the music and in the way it was performed. What was good or bad and what made it so? Be specific.
If it was a group concert, how did the performers work as an ensemble?
What kinds of themes, messages or ideas came across to you in the concert?
What did the experience cause you to think about or feel?
Briefly comment on the visual impact of the concert.
Setting, lights, concert dress, movement. How did these add to or detract from the mood and power of the music? What did you notice about audience behavior
